Reverse Confetti November Release Blog Hop - Sending Warm Hugs and Tags

Good morning! It's time! The NEW November Release is live at Reverse Confetti - and the DT (and some very special guests!) are hopping with even more inspiration for you!


First up to share with you today, I have perhaps my favorite card that I made with this release!


For this card I started off by stamping and coloring in several of the adorable images from the new Huggable stamp set, and die cut them out with the Coordinating Dies.


I die cut 3 of the smallest circles from the new Circle Tag Confetti Cuts as spaces for each critter to sit, and layered it over some of the pattern paper from the new 6x6 Winter Wonder Pattern Paper Pad.


Popped the critters up on foam adhesive, stamped and heat embossed a sentiment in white on some Piggy Bank cardstock, and popped that up on foam adhesive as well. Finished off with a sprinkling of sparkling clear sequins for some sparkle!


Next up, Reverse Confetti is participated in the 25 Days of Christmas tags, so I have a couple of tags to share as well!


For these tags I used the new Circle Tag Confetti Cuts and die cut them from watercolor paper, then stamped on some of the lovely flowers from the new Beautiful Memories stamp set.


It had been far too long since I pulled out my Peerless Watercolors, so I decided to use those to color the images in. I always love how bright and vibrant they are!


I finished off with a sentiment from the new Thank You stamp set, and added some sparkly Nuvo drops to the flowers, then tied some twine on the top of them.


Here is a peek at the new products I used that released today!

Reverse Confetti November Release Day 3 - Warm Hugs and Thank You

Good morning! Welcome to the 3rd and final day of sneak peeks for the fabulous new November Release at Reverse Confetti! Woohoo! The release is live tomorrow, the 8th and there will be a blog hop to celebrate! Make sure and come back for that!

Today's cards feature sentiments, cover dies, and pattern paper as the stars of the show!


For this first card, I layered together some pattern paper from the new Winter Wonder paper pad with the other half of the die cut Stitched Burst Cover panel from yesterday's card.


I die cut the new Warm Hugs die once from another piece of pattern paper, then a couple more times from white cardstock and layered them together for a dimensional word, and adhered that in place.


Finished off with a sentiment from the new Thank You stamp set, heat embossed on a hand trimmed banner of Aqua cardstock, and popped up with foam adhesive - then mounted on a cardbase of the same color cardstock!


Next up mixing and matching more of the same!


I used the Snow Stars Cover Panel to die cut a white piece of cardstock, then layered it over a soft blue Mist cardbase.


Added some more of that pattern paper, tearing the edges on a strip to add texture.


Finally, heat embossed my sentiment from the new Thank You stamp set on some Bumblebee cardstock, die cut with the Coordinating Dies, added the shadow layer with Baby Blue cardstock, and added an add on sentiment stamped on a thin strip.


Here is a look at the new products that I used on these cards that will be releasing in a few days!

Paper Smooches - NOVEMBER 2019 Blog Hop

Good morning! I'm delighted this morning to be joining in as guest designer this month for the BRAND NEW Paper Smooches Release Blog Hop! There are 2 new stamp sets, 4 new dies, and 2 stencils! You can find the new release HERE! There are also prizes up for grabs along the blog hop today - check out the bottom of my post for more details!


I have a total of 3 cards to share with you today - first up this card with mostly stenciling, and just a bit of die cutting and stamping!


For this first card, I started off by die cutting the new To From Tag Die from white cardstock, then did some stenciling with the new Botanicals Stencil and my distress inks. I masked off the parts I wasn't using which made it super quick and easy!


I then tucked a few Pretty Pink Posh jewels on the flowers to add some texture and shine, and threaded through some jute string through the top.


For the cardbase, I used another new stencil - Savvy Stencil - and more distress ink to add a stripe along the background, and also added some black splatters to the background with my Pinkfresh Studio Licorice Liquid watercolors. I finished off by stamping a sentiment from the new Feel Better Sampler stamp set on the bottom, and attached the tag with foam adhesive, tucking the ends of the jute string behind the tag. I love how that final touch turned out!


Next up, I have a fun shaker card using the adorable new Well Wishes stamp set and coordinating Well Wishes Icons Dies.


For this card, I started off by die cutting the window through the front panel of the card, then stamped my that huge sentiment in all it's adorableness through the window onto another panel of white cardstock and coloring it in with Copic markers.


I then created the shaker and filled it with a few sparkly 3mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!


Finally, I added a layer of yellow cardstock behind the shaker element, and mounted the entire thing onto a blue cardbase.


Finally - I have a card featuring entirely die cutting - no stamping or stenciling at all!


This final card uses the fun new Sunflower Dies - I die cut them all from plain watercolor cardstock, then did some ink smooshing with distress inks to add color to them. Once all the layers dried, I assembled them with some liquid adhesive and adhered them to a panel of white cardstock.


For the sentiment, I die cut the new Thinking of You Die from white cardstock and black cardstock, then did some ink blending on the white layer to make it coordinate with the flower above. I adhered them together slightly offset, and layered them onto my card as well.


I added a nice coating of Glossy Accents over the letters for some fun dimension and shine...


...and also to the center of the sunflower! I always love the fun shine that adding Glossy Accents adds to a card!
